MJ's will is fake, says pal David Gest

London, Sun, 28 Oct 2012 ANI

London, Oct 28 (ANI): Michael Jackson's oldest pal David Gest has waded into the bitter family feud over his will - by branding it as fake.

Reality TV veteran Gest is seething about the way the King of Pop's estimated 1-billion-pound legacy is being handled by powerful lawyers.

He spoke as the Jackson clan tore themselves apart over his fortune - and his siblings were left nothing.

"There's a lot of questions about the will," the Sun quoted him as saying.

"One of the things people are wondering is how Michael was supposed to have signed that will in LA - when supposedly he was in New York that day.

"If he was in New York, how could he have signed it in LA?" he said.

Gest's accusation echoes claims by some of the late singer's furious brothers and sisters, who say there is evidence he was with family friend Al Sharpton in New York on June 7, 2002.

That is the day he is meant to have put his signature on his will.

Some family members also claim the initial copy of the will they saw did not have a signature page on it.

The terms of the document leave sole control of his estate, growing by millions every day from posthumous record sales, to two lawyers.

One is flashy John Branca, the other John McLain, a music chief at Interscope Records.

"I know the family weren't happy," Gest said.

"They probably thought they would be running the estate. But it was left to John Branca, who Michael had just gotten back with," he added. (ANI)
